TV Cable, Antenna, Satellite clarification
My dear wife gave me a Tailgater for Christmas - yeah for the designated driver. We've left on a 2 month hiatus -often with 3 grandkids- in our 351DS and will be in a number of areas without TV cable and poor OTA reception. So...
First day on the road I got everything up and running BUT...The picture in the living room TV was very noisy - meaning lots of snow other TVs were less snowy.
I used the cable input in the rear storage area (next to power cable). I put the receiver into the storage area above passenger seat that houses the switcher box. Because the VIP211z doesn't have a coax out I used a RF modulator on the Y-R-W outs on the 211z to connect to the switcher box. I disconnected the cable connection and reconnected the modulator coax cable. This setup works BUT... the picture has lot of snow.
If I could understand the wiring diagram for the video cabling I could perhaps find the culprit. Might be a bad splitter, line, etc that doesn't measure up to the quality or specs needed for the satellite input.
